The  AIBA Star One Coach Certification that started on February 19, 2017  was aimed at enriching the knowledge of Indian coaches on teaching the fundamentals of boxing to the youth and aspiring pugilists. For Referees and Judges the AIBA Star One course and examination began on February 21st and aimed to enhance the level of R&Js, who are working in domestic and global competitions. 

The newly formed Boxing Federation of India that aims to revive the sport of boxing in the country is leaving no stone unturned to give it to the sport what it has lost in so many years. The proposal to organise AIBA One Star Certification Courses for BFI Coaches and RJs was shared with AIBA by BFI President, Ajay Singh back in December 2016 when the BFI delegation visited Switzerland and met Dr.Ching-Kuo Wu, President –AIBA. The Certification courses for Coaches and Referees and Judges now entitles them to be able to participate in international competitions.

Seeing the enthusiasm of BFI and with its current rate of success in organising events at larger level at such a short span of time, AIBA welcomed the proposal and immediately agreed to organise the certification courses in India. AIBA sent a team of instructors to successfully conduct the courses. Mr. Adams Kusior, Chairman AIBA Coaches Commissions and Mr. Mofu Makhaya Andile from the AIBA Coaches Commission conducted the Coaches Certification Course while Mr. Oswaldo Bisbal, Chairman AIBA R&J  Commission and Mr. John Wayen Rose, Member- AIBA R&J Commission conducted the R&Js One star certification course and examination.

BFI President Ajay Singh along with Shri Inder Dhamija, Joint Secretary (Sports) formally inaugurated the courses. Present to grace the occasion was Indian boxer Vijender Singh who is also the brand ambassador for the National Boxing Academy, Rohtak.

Speaking at the conclusion of the courses, BFI President, Mr. Ajay Singh said, “The response of AIBA towards the federation has been great. They have shown lot of confidence in us and are willing to jointly hold more Certification Courses and other activities in India in near future.”

I am also glad to see the participation in galore from coaches and RJs. The fraternity here is willing to learn new techniques and guidelines to empower themselves and henceforth the sport. It is surely going to benefit Indian boxing. Infact this marks as the beginning of developing our human resource and knowledge bank. We will now be hosting AIBA 2 star courses in May-June and 3 star courses in Oct-Nov this year,” added Singh.

The courses will surely help Coaches and RJs hone their skills and pass on the knowledge to the junior staff. The courses were a mix of theoretical and practical classes emphasising on the changes in rules and covering all aspects required for being a good AIBA RJ when officiating. The lectures were also followed by some exhibition bouts to assess the learnings of the participants.

Commenting on the concluding ceremony, Mr. Bisbal and Mr. Rose said, “The facility at National Boxing Academy is amazing. We are extremely happy with the professionalism of BFI, the enthusiasm and passion of participants of both the courses. We wish all of them luck for their future endeavours into boxing.”
